A Table Saw Sled for Picture Perfect Miters!

By: John Doyle
If you’ve ever been frustrated trying to cut gap-free miter joints on the table saw, then this miter sled is for you.

Get the step-by-step plans to build this Table Saw Miter Sled from WoodsmithPlans.com.

This sled has two aluminum runners that ride in the miter slots on your table saw. This makes it solid and slide smoothly for consistent, accurate cuts.

T-track in the fence allows you to use a stop block to guarantee that your workpieces will be exactly the same length. Plus we added anti-slip tape to keep workpieces from sliding around when you aren't using the stops.

Need to cut longer pieces? Just add a couple of extensions made with aluminum angle and secured with studded knobs screwed into threaded inserts installed in the wood fence (shown in drawing above). This table saw sled is a great jig that you can build in a weekend and then cut picture perfect miters for a lifetime.
